Today we are discussing escort cards vs. place cards, what’s the difference? Although they may seem like the same thing, they’re not and serve two totally different purposes! Let’s begin.
Escort Cards – Anything that states a person’s name and is used to direct that person to their table (easy way to remember this – escort cards escort you to your table)!
Place Cards – Anything that states a person’s name and is used to show a person their place at a table (easy way to remember this – place cards place you at a specific seat).
Now, do you have to have both for your wedding day? No, it totally depends how you want to manage your guest experience and the formality of your wedding. The most common card used at weddings is the escort card and I HIGHLY suggest using them. Escort cards are especially useful for large guest lists.
For small intimate events, using place cards is quite acceptable.
So now that you know the difference between the two, let’s dig into the fun stuff… the different types of cards you can use. Now this is where infusing your love story/personality comes into play. You can get as creative as your want with these cards. Just because it says card, doesn’t mean you have to use a card!!
Tell me… what did you use or what will you be using for your wedding?
